Founder led enterprises are the nuclei of innovation and progress and play a pivotal role in economic prosperity. 

Ireland has a rich and diverse pool of founder led enterprises.  Whether in the form of High Potential Start Ups, Scaling companies, Initial Public Offerings (IPOs), Unicorns or indeed founder led multinationals, these businesses are attracting international attention and investment. 

We, in Ibec, know that curating the surrounding ecosystem required at each stage of these founder led companies’ growth is fundamental for their and ultimately Ireland’s economic success. 

Working with our members, trade associations and policy teams we have identified the key policy recommendations that will enable the individuals who have taken on this risk, and their companies, to flourish in Ireland and compete globally. These set of recommendations are particularly important and timely in this volatile global environment.

We also know, because you told us, that meeting people in person across the ecosystem is vital.  As such, we are delighted to invite you to join us and others from across the ecosystem (Founders, could be Founders, Funders of all types and other stakeholders) in person on the 12th of September at Ibec Head Office at Baggot Street for the launch of the 'Founders Report' and some networking from 9.30am to 11.30am
